Published Add your comment

Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini has confirmed that goalkeeper Shay Given could be facing three months on the sidelines with a shoulder injury.

Given will see a specialist about the problem on Wednesday and Mancini expects the Irish stopper will require surgery.

"Shay has this problem in his shoulder and I think he needs three months to recover," Mancini said. "He has the same injury that he had last year and I think that he needs an operation."
